Welcome to my blog on the top 3 essential wedding tips to plan an awesome wedding from the ‘no ordinary wedding planner’. I’m often asked what I think are key ingredients for success so here we go!
Lets get this right – you don’t need a fortune to have an awesome wedding. I’ve seen the best weddings on a tight budget – its how you spend and manage your money that matter.
Looking after the pennies is vitally important. You need to start out with an expectation of what you want to spend to avoid a wedding budget spiralling out of control. And believe me I’ve seen it happen – the wedding industry is full of so many great ideas (you know all those Pinterest boards!) but you don’t have to have them all – it’s about picking the ones which are right for you both.
Create a plan! What do I mean – setting up a wedding day timetable which sets out what is meant to be happening and when will make sure everyone is aligned to your vision. And don’t plan to do anything yourselves – you need to enjoy your wedding day!
This one seems obvious but you need to pick the right suppliers.
For your key suppliers such as photographer, videographer, wedding planner – things will go far more smoothly if you get on with them. Imagine your wedding photographs if you don’t actually like your photographer! Eek!
You also need to vet them to make sure they are reliable and not going to let you down – don’t just take the one on the top of the Google search!
